Republicans Lash Out At Obama, Even As Fiscal Cliff Deal Close At Hand
Republicans reacted immediately and with tremendous hostility to President Obama’s remarks at the White House Monday afternoon, and accused him of jeopardizing a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.
That was before Obama’s remarks, in which he boasted that the nascent plan would protect major progressive priorities, and attacked Congress for threatening to derail it before the end of the day when all of the Bush tax cuts expire.

Oh, that shameful Obama. He "jeopardized" the deal by... um... repeating something that he's been saying for the last 10 months and which he got reelected based on and which the majority of Americans (and in some polls, the majority of registered Republicans) support.
As Cenk Uyger says, what more do Republican politicians have to do to show their voters "We don't work for you"?

I applaud the President for standing firm on the issue of the need to increase taxes.
To Boner and Mchinless you remain as pathetic as you ever were. I cannot believe you got elected to any office whatsoever.
